...As for one advantage found in their manufacturer's web page. BTW not rec'd for w/ CFLs, comp flor. light bulbs!
My garage/basement/laundry area is kept at a low temperature-- will the DuPont™ Self-Charging Smoke Alarm still work?
The DuPont™ Self-Charging Smoke Alarm has UL certification for use in areas where temperature may regularly drop to 5°F unlike most smoke alarms which are normally tested and are specified to work at temperatures above 40°F.

Your DuPont TM Smoke Alarm PS-131 is only intended for use with conventional light bulbs up to a maximum rating of 60 watts, and low energy type bulbs with a similar rating.

Boy; what a lot of whining "I can't use this Woot!" C'mon people! If you could use 'em all, you'd be broke!
Seriously, though, these are perfect for a laundry room, utility room, or attached (or drive-under) garage. When I lived in an apartment, I had a storage closet off the balcony. Now, I have a laundry/utility room with a Carbon Monoxide (but not smoke) detector; I think I'm inspired now to get one of these at Big Lots.
And, seriously, make sure ANY smoke detector is very close to the ceiling, or it may not go off until you're already dead. And that would be bad.
I'm supposed to buy something? But we're having so much fun with things as they are, I don't want to ruin it!
